I was just saying what’s up to him. He told me to cool off at that point.”He did cool off, with only two points and four shots after halftime.“The other team played with more energy,” Burke said.Miami’s halftime lead was 64-47, before New York briefly made things interesting. Tim Hardaway Jr.’s 3-pointer got the Knicks within 72-63 with 5 minutes gone in the third, but that’s when Johnson made his back-to-back 3s to restore order.The lead eventually swelled to 28 and the Heat emptied their bench with 5 minutes left.TIP-INSKnicks: Lance Thomas (family matter) remained away from the team, and Emmanuel Mudiay started despite a sore ankle. … Beasley was 4 for 4 in the first quarter.

Wade is close to a return, but the Heat haven’t set a timetable. … Ellington’s third 3-pointer was his 200th of the season, making him the third Heat player with that many in a season. He joins Damon Jones (225) and Tim Hardaway Sr. (203). … The 17-point halftime lead was Miami’s fourth-largest this season.LIFE OF RILEYHeat President Pat Riley turned 73 on Tuesday. New York won seven playoff series in his four years as Knicks coach, and has won nine playoff series in the 23 seasons since he left for Miami.ROAD WOESThe Knicks are 8-29 on the road this season — and two of those wins were at Brooklyn, which means they’re 6-29 outside of New York. Tyler Johnson hit back-to-back 3-pointers in the third quarter to spark the run that put Miami in control for good, Kelly Olynyk finished with 22 points and a career-high 10 assists and the Heat rolled past the New York Knicks 119-98 on Wednesday night.Miami was 5 for 7 from 3-point range in the third, 15 for 34 from beyond the arc for the game, and is now only three makes away from the franchise record of 808 set last season.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“They’re shooting the right ones,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “I get that analytics question all the time: ‘Do you just want to shoot a bunch of 3s?’ It depends.

GPS collaborates with MoPH to manage vulnerable prisoners

first_imgDirector of Prisons Gladwin Samuels said the Guyana Prison Service continues to collaborate with the Public Health Ministry to ensure proper care and management of vulnerable prison inmates.“A number of persons who are held in the prisons in Guyana ought not to be there because they actually require specialised treatment. Our prisons across Guyana account for about 75 persons who are known to be mentally unstable, and with our relationship with the Ministry of Health, we were able to provide daily care to those persons before the July 9 fire of 2017,” Samuels said.Although these prisoners are now dispersed across the country due to the fire, the Prison Director noted that efforts are still being made to care for them. He also made it known that with the training, prison officers would now be able to identify and properly care for those deemed mentally ill.At the opening ceremony of the Handling Vulnerable Prisoners training programme, the acting Director of Prisons disclosed that the Prison Service has accounted for a number of these vulnerable prisoners.“So, by being able to adequately identify these persons, we will be able to adequately cater for them and provide the necessary segregation for them and also expose them to the necessary training to better equip them to deal with the challenges,” Samuels stated.The Prison Director also made it known that despite the challenges faced by these mentally unstable persons, they nevertheless are a part of the Guyanese population and should to be treated with same respect. He also noted that they need to be safeguarded against harassment, especially in the prison environment, as this can often lead to unfortunate circumstances.The Handling Vulnerable Prisoners training programme commenced on February 5 and will instruct the officers on ways to manage those considered vulnerable. The five-day programme will be facilitated by Director of CreateBetterMinds, Caroline Ravello and UK Consultant Michael Hamilton.last_img read more

BC LNG Industry carries on strong with major developments

first_imgThe BC Government continues to press forward LNG industry development with two more major approval announcements this week.Calgary based TransCanada Corporation has announced it’s received final permits from the Fort St. John based BC Oil and Gas Commission giving it regulatory approval for the construction and operation of the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission pipeline.The OGC permits include about 70 implementation governing conditions, and cover the entire 900 km route from just north of Hudson’s Hope to the proposed Pacific Northwest LNG facility off the Northwest coast near Prince Rupert.- Advertisement -Receiving the 11 pipeline and facility permits is seen as the last major regulatory step for the pipeline which would connect natural gas production in the Montney fields to the LNG export facility owned by the Petronas led consortium.However, before pipeline construction proceeds the project must still get the green light from the federal government, under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, and given the results of last week’s federal election that is now a Liberal and not a Conservative government.Meantime, in the Southwest coastal region, Woodfibre LNG Limited is one step closer to building a natural gas storage facility and marine terminal at Squamish.Advertisement Environment Minister Mary Polak has confirmed, the province has issued an environmental assessment certificate for the close to $2 billion project.This is another project with opposition concerns, and in this case Squamish First Nation council approval of the environmental assessment agreement has divided band members even though the project would provide them with thousands of jobs.Among other things, it would involve the export of about 2,100,000 tonnes of LNG per year, for 25 years, and reportedly means that 3-4 times a month a loaded LNG tanker would travel through Howe Sound.last_img read more

Cost questions delay work on civic center in Bradbury

first_img“I want to set the budget for the project – a number the community can be happy with, and figure out what to do after that,” Barakat said. Guthrie said the city has spent $130,000 – or $139,000, according to Todd – for architectural drawings. But residents disliked the designs so much that Onyx Architects, the Pasadena firm hired by the city, is now working on a new design. “They were too commercial for the residential neighborhood where City Hall is,” said Guthrie. He favors possibly moving City Hall to a site on Royal Oaks Drive near Duarte. Guthrie said he, too, lives near City Hall and added that people have knocked on his door, believing it was City Hall. Guthrie said he realizes the city needs a new or expanded facility. “The current building is so small, it discourages civic involvement,” he said. “You get more than 10 people at a council meeting, and it’s a standing-room-only crowd.” Todd said that while people may be unhappy about spending nearly $140,000 for architectural plans, that was the price agreed upon. “What people don’t get is that we have tried to keep cost down as low as possible, to get a functional facility at a cost residents can afford. Our aim is to secure a building for the least amount of money,” Todd said. He said the most logical site is the current one. Moving City Hall to East Royal Oaks Drive, Todd said, would cause problems. “The residents wouldn’t want it there and it would raise more issues, cause more delays and more divisiveness,” he said. emanuel.parker@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4475 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

(The deadline for candidates to file to run for the post is 5 p.m. today.) That leaves two council members favoring the project and one opposed – but three votes are needed to act. Barakat said he doesn’t want to spend more than $600,000 to renovate the current City Hall at 600 Winston Ave. The existing building is 1,100 square feet and occupies a third of its one-acre site. The project to replace that building, approved by the council in January last year, is budgeted at $2.4 million and calls for the construction of a 3,200 square-foot facility. It would include a community center and offices for city staff. BRADBURY – Building a better civic center here will have to wait until the City Council can agree on its cost. In a project originally expected to be done by July of last year, design plans for a new building to replace a small civic center structure are in limbo now, with not enough council votes to either move the project forward or kill it. Mayor William Todd and Mayor Pro Tem Richard T. Hale favor the project, while Councilman Brian Guthrie said too much money has been spent on architectural plans. Councilman Richard Barakat lives so close to City Hall he has had to recuse himself from voting on the issue. last_img read more

Football Welcomes the Moundbuilders on Saturday

first_img Southwestern Game Notes Live Audio Drake Game Notes Live Stats Live Video center_img Buy Tickets Story Links DES MOINES, Iowa — The Drake University football team welcomes NAIA member Southwestern College (Kan.) to Drake Stadium on Saturday at 6 p.m.Saturday’s contest is the first meeting between Drake and Southwestern. The Bulldogs opened the season with a tough 77-7 loss to South Dakota last week, while the Moundbuilders came out on the short end of an offensive shootout, falling to Hastings College, 52-35. Fourth-year head coach Rick Fox and his Bulldogs were picked to finish fourth in the Pioneer Football League Coaches Preseason Poll, as they return nine all-PFL performers and 18 student-athletes that started at least one contest in 2016. Fox welcomes back a strong core group, cemented by the team’s four captains, fifth-year seniors Tanner Evans (DL), Ryan Lemke (OL) and Payson Wick (OL) and senior Nathan Clayberg (OL). The Bulldog ground game ran by committee in the season opener with senior Tyler Updegraff and sophomores Taylor Murph and Isaiah Skinner getting call. Updegraff scored his first collegiate touchdown, while Murph and Skinner both made their collegiate debuts. Fifth-year senior Mack Marrin battled through injury most of last season and is looking like he is getting back to his 2015 form when he posted a league-best 8.5 sacks among 12.5 tackles for a loss and earned first-team all-PFL honors. Last week, Marrin recorded four tackles, half a sack and a pass breakup. Southwestern begins year three under head coach Brad Griffin and welcomes nearly 70 new athletes. The Moundbuilders young squad is led by freshman running back Keyshawn Wyatt. In his collegiate debut, Wyatt recorded a game-high 128 yards rushing on 14 carries. Junior quarterback Christian Gordon accounted for all five of SC’s touchdowns in its season opener and also racked up 254 yards of total offense (186 passing, 68 rushing). Senior linebacker David Ashilonu leads the Southwestern defense, as he registered a team-high 12 tackles last week. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
